Would you like to make your very own Bronze Age jet jewellery?
If you do, then why not join our workshop with Emma Jones on Friday, 20th October 2023, in the Learning Centre at Kilmartin Museum from 10am-4pm.
Book quickly as there are only 8 spaces available on this one-day workshop, and the cost for the day is £70 and includes materials you will use to make your jewellery. The minimum age for participants is 16 years.
Emma Jones specialises in creating replica prehistoric jewellery from the Stone Age through to the Bronze Age. Having recently completed a replica of the Poltalloch Jet Necklace, Emma is fascinated by the tools and techniques our prehistoric makers would have used to create the originals found in Scotland today.
This one-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to create their own Bronze Age jewellery using a range of techniques that would have been available to makers over 5,000 years ago! Find out how people in the Bronze Age used jet and jet-like materials to create a range of personal ornamentation, from bangles, buttons, belt rings, beads and pendants! The workshop will contextualise Bronze Age jewellery with a focus on Scottish finds. Which artefact will you choose to replicate?
